The one thing I am passionate about...
Self Betterment. Be it learning to fly airplanes, doing a culinary apprenticeship in Europe, or trying my best to learn to meditate, I have an incredible drive to stay in a constant state of bettering myself. There's so much out there to know and experience. It's a shame I only have 24 hours in a day.
I typically spend my leisure time
I read a lot and play my guitar. I mostly read books that my friends would call boring. Historical non-fiction, Biographies, and a lot of how-to books.
The most influential person in my life has been
I do not have a long list of minute qualities that I am looking for. I am only looking for someone who knows herself, has the confidence to stay herself, even when it's easier to bend, but is kind and generous enough to allow me to be who I am. It seems so simple, but it really is hard to find.
The first thing people notice about me
My charisma. It's hard to say this without sounding arrogant, but people really do seem to gravitate toward me. I don't know exactly what I do, but ever since I can remember, people just like being around me it seems.
The last book I read and enjoyed
"You Say More Than You Think," is a book about body language. It is written by a government interrogator for the ATF. She describes how people hold themselves and how they act when they are lying, disinterested, attracted to you, not attracted to you, happy, sad etc. I absolutely LOVE that kind of stuff.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My ambition
- My desire to always learn more
- My patience
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I'd much rather listen than talk. Because of how I am, a lot of people recognize me and stop to say hello, so I end up telling a lot of stories, joking around, and in general talking a lot. I think it surprises my partners when we are alone, that I am really much calmer, and a real laid back listener than they thought when they met me.
Friends Describe me as
